Ingredients

You only need four ingredients in order to make this homemade oreo ice cream.

  • Heavy Whipping cream (heavy cream) – The heavy cream, once whipped, is what will give the ice cream the light and fluffy texture.
  • Sweetened condensed milk – Don’t get this confused with evaporated milk. The sweetened condensed milk helps thicken the mixture and adds the sweetness that ice cream needs.
  • Vanilla extract – make sure it is a pure extract, not imitation. The best way to do this is homemade, of course.
  • Oreos – I used the regular, original oreo cookies for this recipe. However, you could use double stuffed, or any of the oreo variations you like. There are endless flavor options and seasonal mixes available. If you want to get downright sinful, add a handful of mini chocolate chips too.

How to Make Oreo Ice Cream

Turn America’s favorite cookie into a delectable dairy dessert with these simple steps.

  1. Blend oreos. Place a third of the oreos in a blender or food processor and pulse until you have small crumbs and set aside.
  2. Make larger oreo pieces. Crumble another third oreos into small pieces with your hands, or place in a ziplock bag and crush with a rolling pin and set aside.
  3. Beat cream and vanilla. Add the heavy cream and vanilla to a large bowl. Beat with a hand mixer just until it begins to thicken.
  4. Add the condensed milk and continue to cream ice cream until soft peaks are beginning to form.
  5. Fold in crumbs and oreo pieces. Fold in the crumbs, followed by the crumbled oreos.
  6. Pour the ice cream mixture into loaf pan. Break the remaining oreos over the top of the ice cream, or decorate with whole oreos.
  7. Freeze and serve. Place in the freezer for at least eight hours, or overnight to freeze. Scoop and serve as desired.

Variations

There are plenty of ways you can make this oreo ice cream recipe your own.

  • Cookies – Not a fan of the chocolate and creme-flavored oreos? You can swap them out for any kind of cookie you’d like. Chocolate chip would be great.
  • Add ins – In addition to the real oreo cookie pieces, you can add other bits in as well. Think along the lines of M&Ms, chocolate chips or other complementary chocolate goodies.
  • Swirls of flavor – I’m a sucker for dipping oreos in peanut butter, so feel free to swirl something like caramel or peanut butter into the mix.

No-Churn vs Churned Ice Cream

There are a few differences between traditional churned ice cream and no-churn ice cream. Both in the ingredients and the process used to make it.

Traditional ice cream requires a few more ingredients and more equipment to make. Churned ice cream often begins by making a custard with eggs and cream, heating it on the stove and then adding it to an ice cream maker where it is slowly churned while it is frozen.

The process of churning while freezing creates the smooth ice cream and prevents crunchy crystals from forming.

No-churn ice cream, on the other hand, requires no heating or special equipment to make. You simply mix the ingredients in a bowl, pour it in a container and toss it in the freezer to set.

There is a definite texture difference between the two with traditional ice cream being a bit firmer and smoother. No-churn ice cream like this Oreo Ice Cream tends to be fluffier and it will melt quite a bit quicker at room temperature than churned ice cream will.

Storage

The only real way to store ice cream is to freeze it. If you store it in the refrigerator, it will inevitably melt.

You can store it in the loaf pan that it was originally made in, just be sure to cover it tightly with plastic wrap. Alternatively, store it in an airtight container.
